We spent 4 nights at the Lighthouse and would highly recommend it for the beautiful setting, great location and well maintained, clean rooms. The resort is spacious and has a really relaxed feel. The sea is quite rough here but its not far to walk to gentler beaches if you want to swim in the sea. We tended to stay around the lower level pool which was very peaceful. With our sun lounges facing out to the rocky beaches and with quite cheap drinks and snacks available, we were very happy indeed.
The food in the main dining area was very good, especially the breakfasts, with lots of variety. A Sri lankan buffet night was also good with more variety than we encountered anywhere else in Sri Lanka. We did not try the fine dining restaurant as it looked a bit dull and was deserted. It's a quick trip by tuk-tuk into Galle for more interesting dining options. (Highly recommend the Deco on 44 restaurant in the fort area for great seafood).
Our ground floor rooms were very large and opened onto a terrace and grassed area with beautiful views of the sea. Service throughout the resort was faultless.
We were really happy with the choice we made to stay at the Lighthouse. The new wing under construction can be seen but there was little noise that we noticed.
